Explore the Oregon Coast

Things to Do During Your Labor Day Getaway

The mighty Oregon Coast is a sight to behold. It's well-known for towering seaside cliffs, rocky beaches, and majestic pines draped in mist. To start, visit Bastendorff Beach, a famous shore with many picnic spots. Then head just a few miles south to Cape Arago State Park. This renowned sunset spot is also ideal for whale watching and seal spotting.

Away from the ocean, many more scenic spots await. You can head to Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, where the forest meets the ocean at massive sand dunes. With an off-road vehicle, like a dune buggy, you can tackle the towering dunes for a day of adventure.

There are more attractions around Coos Bay and along the Oregon Coast that include favorites like:

Trek Through the Rocky Mountains

Things to Do During Your Labor Day Getaway

Tucked away in the Rocky Mountains is the charming town of Granby, Colorado. It's an outdoorsy paradise, especially with the nearby lakes. The largest is found at Lake Granby, an excellent spot for boating and fishing. Make sure you don't miss out on Grand Lake and Adams Falls.

The real treasure, however, lies just outside Granby. Heading north along US-34 will bring you to the heart of Rocky Mountain National Park. Filled with scenic drives and some of the best hiking trails in North America, the Rockies are truly what Colorado is all about.

Still want more to do? Try going horseback riding or whitewater rafting. And if you visit during the snowy season, head up to Winter Park for skiing and snowboarding.
